looks great!

So a guy walks into a Pet Store

Guy: "I have Algae on my drift wood!"

Pet Clerk: "Take two Plecos and call me next week."

Don't have any more unfortunately . Sold it or gave it all away. Didnt fit with my new rescape. But don't worry, under high light and co2, it grows like a damn weed. You'll have more than you know what to do with soon enough lol.

What are your parameters? My pH is about 6.3-6.4, temp: 80F, low kh with very high light. I dose npk and csm+b and the growth is explosive. I think the extreme light is key to it taking off. Once it got close to the surface it started to turn pink
